The Chrono-Functional Resume

The chrono-functional resume can be a powerful and flexible tool for the job seeker with a solid employment background and special skills he/she wants to emphasize. Like the chronological resume, it chronologically lists job history and education, while allowing the job seeker to highlight what makes his/her qualifications especially marketable.

This type of resume is a good choice for recent graduates with some job experience, career changers, and at-home parents returning to the job market.
